[audio]Clarence Ashley-Coo Coo Bird - Clarence Ashley
Recorded on October 23, 1929 in Johnson City, Tennessee.

[audio]Eucci - Catalog Life [rive047] - Eucci
Scenes from a life that inspired a summer catalog collection. Jeff Shell's Eucci brings banjo, rhodes, aggressive leads, and more and runs it through the minimalist musique concrete tape machine, bringing a cut up and softly distorted sound to faintly recognizable objects and a touch of bluegrass. Percussion, pops, and dusty instruments swarm around your ears like summer dreams in urban parks. Banjo by Kate Cheuffer Remastered and re-encoded by Sunhil, November 2009

[audio]Bascom Lamar Lunsford-Lost John Dean - Bascom Lamar Lunsford
Recorded in February 1928 in Ashland, Kentucky. It is claimed that this tune is based on an event involving a black trusty incarcerated in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It appears that he was to be the guinea pig in a test concerning the smelling reliability of a new pack of bloodhounds. The trusty, however, used a barrell to outwit the hounds and escaped to parts unknown.

[audio]Bascom Lamar Lunsford-Dry Bones - Bascom Lamar Lunsford
Recorded in February 1928 in Ashland, Kentucky. A rare example of the banjo used in a religious tune. This tune contains references to Enoch (Gen 5:21-24), Paul (Acts 16:25-26), Moses (Exo 3:2) and a strange account out of Ezekiel about walking bones (Ezek 37:1-10), not to mention Eve and "Satan a-tempting me."

[audio]Dock Boggs-Danville Girl - Dock Boggs
Recorded in 1927 in New York City. This tune is part of a group of tunes that includes "Wild And Reckless Hobo." There is something obsessive about this tune: a married man lusts after a girl he sees on the train platform.

[audio]Dock Boggs-Country Blues - Dock Boggs
Recorded in 1927 in New York City. Jon Pankake wrote "[t]he haunted dissonance of Boggs' banjo playing and the harsh, overpowering emotion of his singing together with the bleakness of the vision expressed in his songs caused me to rethink my notion of 'folk music,' which hitherto I had associated with Pete Seeger's optimism and cheerful, bouncing banjo." This tune belongs to the same family of so-called blues ballads as "Hustling Gamblers" and "Darling Cory."

[audio]Buell Kazee-The Butcher's Boy (The Railroad Boy) - Buell Kazee
Recorded on January 16, 1928 in New York City. This is another mountain ballad that appears to be the product of British ballads that were combined after they reached America. A variation on the "murdered girlfriend" theme in that here the girlfriend takes her own life. Kazee was a baptist minister who sang with a "recital" voice, rather than the raw singing style that is more prevalent in recordings of this type.

[audio]Bascom Lamar Lunsford-I Wish I Was A Mole In The Ground - Bascom Lamar Lunsford
Recorded in April 1928 in Ashland, Kentucky. Another banjo tune with lyrics that could be from any one of a number of tunes, and which have no apparent logical relationship with each other. This particular tune, which became a folkie staple during the Great Folk Scare, is related to tunes known as "Tempie," "Darling Where Have You Been So Long," "Sammie, Where Have You Been So Long," and "I Don't Like No Railroad Man." In "When We Were Good: The Folk Revival" Robert Cantwell says: "Listen to 'I ...

[audio]B. F. Shelton-Pretty Polly - B. F. Shelton
Recorded on July 29 1927 at Bristol, Tennessee during the famous Bristol Sessions where Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family made their first recordings. This version of "Pretty Polly" is just one of the many turns on the "murdered girlfriend" ballad. Banjo players who play these sordid little tunes tend to tune their instrument to a modal tuning. Some researchers have held the belief that "Pretty Polly" is a shortened variation of another ballad called "The Gosport Tragedy."

[audio]Bascom Lamar Lunsford-Little Turtle Dove - Bascom Lamar Lunsford

In addition ot banjo player and collector of mountain tunes, Lunsford was also a country lawyer. This particular tune is a composite of various tunes, many of which have no relation one to the other. Some of the lines of this tune may be from "The Storms Are On The Ocean" and "Fare You Well, My Own True Love."
